Shoot, edit, delete, reshoot, edit, FINISHED!

Yep, you guessed! My past week has been filled with photos, accidentally deleting 11,000 photos, trying to recover them, reshooting, reediting, and finally finishing up! 

My dear friends Scott and Elizabeth asked me to shoot their engagement photos, and I was SO beyond excited! I wanted to give them the best photos ever! I got finished editing them and was making space on my hard drive while backing up and accidentally deleted EVERYTHING! I lost 3 sessions, 2 of which I had to reshoot including Scott and Elizabeth’s. Good thing everyone understood and we made plans to fit another session into our busy schedule. I reshoot on Sunday and I wasn’t sure I loved the second session as much as the first because I really loved the first, but after digging my heels into the workflow  I really think the second set turned out better! Maybe it happened for a reason, maybe not, but these photos are pure love! Of course there are some that I can’t get back and am desperately devastated about, but for the most part I really am happy with the second session! Well, here have a look for yourself and tell me what you think!

Family Fun in the Sun!

Hey everyone! On Sunday I had the great opportunity to shoot a lovely family with 2 boys! They were so much fun and so easy going! We went down along the river path by the bow (holy moly is it ever high!!!) and we got some great family fun shots! Here is a few from the session!


I look forward to posting about the 3rd birthday I shot later that day!

Boudoir Marathon = best! (June 10, 2012)

ello, we meet again! Today I am writing about the awesome boudoir marathon that I had the pleasure and opportunity to shoot on Sunday June 10, 2012!

It was an awesome event, and my 3rd marathon with Kim of KAT Make-up Design. This was the first even we have done in my home, which was really nice because I knew the light and both of the rooms really well. It was a great opportunity and I am so happy with the photos! Even though I was working through editing Jessica and Jason’s wedding the ‘kid in a candy store’ feeling took over and I had to edit a few for a quick preview. Let’s just say it was love at first sight! The light was great and the girls were stunning, and over all it just went so well!

Kim and I try and hold a marathon every couple of months and our next one is July 22, 2012 in Lethbridge, Ab ( about 2 hours away). I am so very excited about it all! This week I am doing a sweet 16 party, which should be a lot of fun as I haven’t done anything like this yet. I am finding that I am starting to learn so much and in the past couple weeks I really feel like I am starting to find my niche and photog style. I feel like I am finding my own feet in this big place!

Anyway, I am getting really excited about my lighting class coming up on June 28, 2012 and I am looking forward to a lot of great shoots coming up! So, with that said, here are a few photos from the boudoir marathon, I am sure you have all been waiting!



I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!


Jessica & Jason Married – Calgary Wedding Photography

ey, it’s me again. Shocked? Well, you shouldn’t be since I am the writer lol. Anywho, this post is all about the fabulous wedding i had the opportunity to photography yesterday (June 9, 2012)

Jessica and Jason are an amazing young couple! The wedding took place at a Douglasdale golf course and the scenery was just stunning! The hall was decked in lovely green and purple decorations and although we had a time war with the impeding rain, the photos will surely turn out great! We headed up to Rotary Park for wedding party shots and of course weddings are always a long day, so naturally the wedding party was hungry, so we decided to make a pit stop in at Peter’s Drive In and grab a milkshake and a few photo since it is a landmark! They turned out awesome and the crowd honked and cheered for the newlyweds!

I was lucky enough to do Jessica and Jason’s engagement photos a few months back, so it is always nice to see both days and create some similarities in the photos. Everyone was so nice and super easy going, which made for a wonderful day. Although we did see some rain and hail the broody sky made for a nice back drop over the cityscape. All in all, an excellent day!

This morning I did some boudoir shoots, so I am look forward to working through those and keeping you all updated on the events of the day!

So, without further delays here are a few sample shots from yesterday’s lovely wedding!



Baby Shower Sunday – June 3, 2012

Hello again, it’s me your host – Stephanie. Today I am writing about the wonderful baby shower I photographed last Sunday. It was fabulous and our guest of honour, Manjit was such an incredible hostess with such great style! The house and yard were immaculate, which made it easy to snap some wonderful candid photos of all the guest. However, I have to say the little ones of the party stole my heart! The weather was great for a party and the sky was beautiful! There was tons of food, fun, and games! What a great way to spend a Sunday! Here are a few shot I nabbed during the event!

In other news, I have an awesome weekend ahead of me! I am doing a wedding for the lovely Jason and Jessica on Saturday and then a fabulous Boudoir marathon on Sunday! Photos to come, I promise!

Thanks for reading!

Just me, my camera, and my blog!


Well, here I am – finally writing a blog. If you didn’t know already, I am Stephanie, your gracious host of the masterpiece. I am the owner and operator of Creative Button Photography and I began Creative Button on April 18, 2011. Photography was not really a part of my plan other than using it as my precious ‘self-care’ time. Professionally, I am a Social Worker and I love my job, but sometimes I need a peaceful place to go after a long day of work. I bought a camera after carrying a point and shoot around with me EVERYWHERE! I started taking photos as often as I could and the big jump was my trip to Costa Rica in February 2011. When I came home people started asking if they could use my photos as screen savers and then people asked to buy prints and then it evolved into people asking me to take photos for them so naturally, In super speed time I decided that Creative Button was now a major faucet of my life. I love it. I love photography. I love seeing things through a lens and I love finding the beauty in the simplest of things.

So, lets fast track to present day, shall we? Ok, here we are. June 5, 2012. I recently began wedding season and it is a steady start. I haven’t advertised much, so getting the word out is slow, but my previous clients have been so amazing in helping me spread the word. I recently invested in Lightroom 4 and have found it to be SOOOOO amazing! I am so glad I finally went for it. Photoshop is a little over whelming for me and I am hoping to take a class sometime soon. Ohh did I tell you, I am taking my first photography class starting June 28! I am so excited, it is a lighting class, which I think will help my work a lot.

On Sunday, the 3rd, I had the pleasure of photographing a Baby shower (of course the individual blog and photos will be coming soon). Other than that I have been practicing with presets and processing tools and working on reediting some of my old photos, so with that said, here are a few for you to feast your lovely eyes on! Please feel free to comment and share!
